I think anything that could potentially identify you is a threat. Maybe the thread subject could tie you to some legal issues (accidents, speeding etc). The plate number does identify you with the right resources. Also, IMO, the internet is a little different than driving around. You expose your plates (possible identity) worldwide ALL the time. That's a little broader than the few present on your ride. These parasites can sit anywhere in the world and search for shit. Not sure they could easily do anything with plate numbers but the fact that it can identify you probably should be considered a threat. Also, it's one thing to identify you on the street, but think of all the posts you may have on here using that screen name. Talking about your interests, your family, links to your childrens photos etc.. They can learn a lot more to target you or your family. Don't make it easy for them. Just my opinion
